Forecast

Tribal Path (4/1), Prove The Point (11/2), So You Thought (6/1), Alcatraz (13/2), Settle For Red (10/1), Nothing To Lose (10/1), Luna's Luck (10/1), High Altitude (10/1), Bainne (12/1), Korbous (14/1), Dinkum Diamond (20/1), Secret Memories (20/1), Harry Speed (20/1), Empress Lyla (25/1)

Verdict
Lightly-raced handicap debutant Luna's Luck certainly can be given claims on his AW maiden form but this will be a completely different test on heavy going and, on that basis, he's opposable. So You Thought should improve for his reappearance for the Weld team while Settle For Red and High Altitude are others to make the shortlist. HARRY SPEED ran well enough over an inadequate 5f when last spotted and, with form over this trip on testing ground, is given a chance with Wayne Lordan booked.
  1. Harry Speed
  2. Settle For Red
  3. So You Thought
